2013 MACCDC Scenario

The country of Hackistan was recently liberated by a coalition of international forces led by the United States.

On April 12 and 13, 2013, citizens of Hackistan will be voting in the country’s first democratic election. Members of the US military will be providing election oversight and security. Current intelligence reports indicate that terrorist groups are planning on a series of physical and cyber attacks to disrupt and/or control the election process.

Hackistan is divided into eight voting districts. Each voting district will have its own self-contained electronic voting system and military support network, including command and control, classified and unclassified networks, etc.

An HQ detachment will be providing communication oversight and operating as a NOC/SOC for the event. (Tentative)

Each defending team represents a group of civilian contractors and is responsible for protecting their district’s network assets, coordinating communications with upper echelons (HQ unit), and supporting deployed assets in the field.

E-Voting Scenario

Spectators and players will receive a voter ID card when they register at the event. The ID card will be theirs to protect and have a fictional name and voting district (1–8, or maybe names) on it.

During the event, those with a voter ID card can approach the appropriate kiosk, swipe their card, and place their vote. Voters may vote for:

  • President and vice president
  • Two district representatives
  • New country name
  • New country flag
  • National animal
Red Cell Goals Related to the Election

Straight party voting will be allowed.

  • Shut down the voting system (lowest priority)
  • Invalidate the election with greater than 100% of the registered voters to vote
  • Invalidate the election with voters voting more than once
  • Get their candidate elected (highest priority)l
